What People are Saying about the Workshops

group writingThere is one particular piece of writing which participants do at my Writing for Wellbeing workshops which is particularly helpful to me — and that is the feedback sheet they complete at the end of the session! It is wonderful to read how people leave the sessions feeling so positive, and to see what are their favorite activities. It is a great boost to me to know that the benefits of Writing for Wellbeing are not just real and true, but are immediate. Thank you to everyone who has participated in the workshops, and for all your helpful feedback. You make it all worthwhile.
